Honda Accord Hybrid and Civic Natural Gas Named to KBB.com’s 10 Best Green Cars of 2014 List

Industry experts at KBB.com named the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid  and the 2014 Honda Civic Natural Gas to their annual list of the 10 Best Green Cars. The editors at Kelley Blue Book were impressed by the Accord Hybrid’s superb driving experience and class-leading fuel economy ratings and by the Civic Natural Gas’ use of a domestically sourced, clean-burning fuel.

“For customers looking to purchase vehicles that have low CO2 emissions, Honda has two great options on KBB.com’s list—the fun-to-drive, fuel efficient Accord Hybrid and the Civic Natural Gas powered without a drop of gasoline,” said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “This recognition from Kelley Blue Book validates the efforts of Honda engineers who for decades have continued to work towards our goal to leave ‘Blue Skies for our Children.’”

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is designed to deliver outstanding fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive performance and, with a 50 miles per gallon EPA city fuel economy rating1, it has the highest city mpg rating of any four door sedan. The Accord Hybrid’s two-motor hybrid system, part of an expanding lineup of Honda Earth Dreams Technology™ powertrains, seamlessly blends electric-only, hybrid and engine drive modes along with powerful regenerative braking to provide responsive and efficient performance in a wide range of driving situations.

KBB.com’s honor adds to the growing list of prestigious awards for the Honda Accord Hybrid that include being named About.com’s “Best New Cars of 2014″ and Green Car Journal’s Green Car of the Year. The Accord Hybrid also earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) (when equipped with the available Forward Collision Warning system) and a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)2.

Also earning a spot on KBB.com’s list, the Honda Civic Natural Gas has a combined EPA fuel economy rating of 31 mpg1‡ and an estimated fuel cost savings of up to 40 percent compared to a typical gasoline-powered compact car. The Civic Natural Gas, powered 100 percent by natural gas, can be refueled in a matter of minutes, much like a conventional gasoline-powered car. New for 2014, the Civic Natural Gas Leather Navi model gains additional premium features such as leather seats, heated front seats, heated side mirrors and a six-speaker audio system. The Civic Natural Gas’ standard interior has also been upgraded for 2014 with more premium seating materials and door panel trim.

Honda Environmental Leadership
Honda’s diverse portfolio of alternative fuel vehicles has included numerous technologies to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions including the first EV leases in California (1997 Honda EV Plus), the retail introduction of America’s first hybrid (1999 Honda Insight), delivery of the first fuel-cell electric vehicle in the U.S. (2002 Honda FCX), five generations of the Civic Natural Gas (first introduced in 1998) and the first gasoline-powered vehicles in the hands of consumers to meet stricter emissions standards. Honda also has led the Union of Concerned Scientists’ (UCS) rankings of overall vehicle environmental performance since 2000, and a Honda vehicle has been included on the list of America’s greenest vehicles from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for the past 16 years.

Kelley Blue Book Names Honda Most Trusted Brand

Honda was named “Most Trusted Brand” by Kelley Blue Book for the third year in a row. Honda was also named Best Non-Luxury Brand for the second year in a row, as well.

“A brand is really built over the long haul through consumers’ experiences with its products, and Honda is committed to delivering class-leading vehicles that provide lasting enjoyment and value to our customers,” Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager for the Honda brand, said in a statement.

These awards are based on the perceptions of visitors to Kelley Blue Book’s website, kbb.com. And perception is everything, right?

“Kelley Blue Book is one of the most trusted online sources for automobile information,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It’s really great that kbb.com and its users have recognized Honda, for the third time, as a brand that everyone can trust for its safety record, performance, affordability, overall value and more.”

Kelley Blue Book Names 2014 Honda Accord One of Best Family Vehicles

It’s true, when SUVs and smaller SUVs, some predicted the end of the family sedan. That prediction has proven not true and the 2014 Honda Accord even goes so far as to say it’s just as good (and even better in some ways) as those SUVs.

And that’s according to Kelley Blue Book’s website, kbb.com.

This sums up the family-friendliness of the 2014 Honda Accord nicely:

“The Honda Accord has been a top seller for literally decades, but this Accord is the most family friendly yet. The Accord has plenty of rear seat room for child boosters, and the trunk holds a stroller plus lots of groceries. The Accord’s touch-screen interface is easy to use, and LaneWatch, Honda’s cool new side-view camera, virtually makes your passenger-side mirror obsolete.

“But beyond all the various features, the Accord is a midsize family car that you’ll just want to drive. It’s refined, competent on every road surface, the 4-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) combine for plentiful power and very good fuel economy, and it even looks good. If you don’t want an SUV, and just enjoy driving, the Accord proves the family sedan still has plenty of life left.”

Yes, some people just want a great family car, not an SUV and the 2014 Honda Accord is a great place to start.

“People want family sedans for different reasons,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “Generally speaking, though, people who want a family sedan want superior gas mileage, plenty of space, a good driving experience, and lots of storage space in the trunk. The 2014 Honda Accord easily fits the bill for all of those things.”

The 2014 Honda Accord comes standard with more technology than you will find in any other family vehicle. Features like LaneWatch and the back-up camera will have you feeling like you paid much more than you really did. It has a very refined, smooth drive that, again, will make you feel like you are driving a much more expensive luxury car. And in that way, it’s a very “un-family” car.

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to find out why the 2014 Honda Accord is one of the best family vehicles available!

Review: Honda CR-V is Fun, Functional

We love the Honda CR-V. Turns out, we aren’t the only ones.

Check out the first paragraph of this review, “The all-new, fourth-generation Honda CR-V debuted late last year with upscale styling, excellent fuel efficiency, and a host of standard convenience features, making it one of the most fun and functional compact SUVs in America. The CR-V returns for 2013 as an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK and is distinguished by a NHTSA 5-star Overall Vehicle Score. Along the way, it has also earned awards from Edmunds.com, Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com and J.D. Power and Associates.”

Yeah. That pretty much sums it up.

  • Safety: “The CR-V has been named a TOP SAFETY PICK (the highest rating possible) by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The rating recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side and rear crashes.”

2013 Honda Accord Named Best New Sedan Under $25,000 by Kelly Blue Book

Kelley Blue Book and editors at KBB.com announced that the 2013 Honda Accord is the best all-around sedan. At same time, KBB.com also announced the 2013 Honda Civic is the best new compact car. We can’t really add much to what the news release said, so here it is in it’s entirety.

I guess we could add, Woo hoo!

“The 2013 Honda Accord and Civic were named to KBB.com’s list of the 10 Best New Sedans Under $25,000. The Honda Accord was the top ranked vehicle on the list of new vehicles introduced in 2013 compiled by the auto experts at KBB.com. The Civic was the highest rated compact car on the list.

“Nothing beats the value Accord and Civic offer customers” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of auto operations at American Honda. “Both models deliver on all fronts – value, performance, fuel efficiency, top safety ratings and a wide array of standard features – all at a competitive price point.”

“As the top ranked model on the list, the Accord was recognized by the editors of KBB.com for its sophisticated styling, excellent driving performance and innovative features, like the available LaneWatch™ blind spot display. Additionally, Accord earns industry-leading safety scores, having been rated a TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and distinguished by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) with a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score1.

“While other mid-size cars have threatened its dominance, now we can definitively say that the Accord is back on top, with the completely overhauled 2013 model hitting No. 1 on our list of the ’10 Best Sedans Under $25,000′,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “The latest Honda Accord is as refined as any previous edition, but with a newfound sense of sporty style and cool new technologies that are as user-friendly as the car itself.”

“The 2013 Honda Civic was the top rated compact car on the list. KBB.com applauded the Civic for its revised interior and exterior styling along with an impressive list of standard features, which includes rearview camera,Bluetooth™ connectivity and Pandora® internet radio capability. The Civic also earns industry-leading safety scores; having been the only compact car rated a TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and distinguished by a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 5-star Overall Vehicle Score1.

2013 Toyota RAV4 Fails Safety Test

The 2013 Toyota RAV4 put off the test as long as it could, but, in the end, that wasn’t enough because it still failed the “small overlap” frontal crash test conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

According to this article on Forbes.com, “The IIHS says during the crash test the driver’s side of the RAV4’s cabin “was seriously compromised by intruding structure, and the dummy’s left foot was trapped by crushed and buckled sheet metal in the footwell.” What’s more, the crash dummy’s head only glanced the front airbag before sliding off to the left and hitting the dashboard while the steering column moved over seven inches to the right, leaving little protection to the virtual driver’s chest. Ouch.”

Ouch indeed.

An editor at Kelley Blue Book says this is actually encouraging because it means that safety groups and automakers are working harder than ever to protect drivers and their passengers.

“It’s encouraging to see both the IIHS and automakers working even harder to protect drivers and passengers,” says Karl Brauer, senior director of insights for Kelley Blue Book. “As more accident data comes in, it uncovers which types of vehicle crashes are the more dangerous, allowing IIHS to create more effective tests that simulate real-world crashes. This inevitably requires automakers to up their game in vehicle design and safety technology…”

What do you think? Does the fact that the redesigned (improved?) 2013 Toyota RAV4 failed this safety test actually make you feel safer?

Honda is Best Brand According to Kelley Blue Book

A survey by Kelley Blue Book took the results from 12,000 survey takers and determined that Honda Motor Co. has the best brand image of all major automakers.

Additionally, Honda took three of the six categories for non-luxury brands, including: best value, most trust, and best overall brand.

According to this article, “The 2013 Brand Image Awards say Honda was the most trusted brand and considered the best value of all car brands in the survey….Honda’s U.S. sales rose 24% in 2012 and have risen a modest 4.4% in the first two months of the year. Its redesigned Accord sedan is selling well and the company is investing heavily in plants in the U.S. and Mexico to meet anticipated demand.”

Being named Best Brand, especially by Kelley Blue Book, is no small deal.

“The competition is really fierce among major automakers, so to chosen as “Best Brand” is a big deal for Honda as a whole and we should see a positive impact at local dealerships like Apple Valley Honda” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager of Apple Valley Honda dealership in Wenatchee. “It’s really not a big surprise to us because the 2013 Honda Accord and other recent Honda vehicles have been so popular with consumers and for good reason.”

According to this article, “”Honda’s win as best overall brand among non-luxury shoppers hardly comes as a surprise,” said Kelley Blue Book’s report on the results. “We admire the refined and reliable vehicles, but also the manner in which Honda promotes itself. You do too, apparently.”
